And She Prays...

Today is the 28th

And I need to pray for my family.

I praise You, Father, for my family. Bind the enemy as he tries to get into my children's lives. Show me what needs to be removed from their precious world that may be a foothold for him. Rescue them from evil and draw them to Your kingdom. (2 Timothy 4:18)

My husband is such a blessing to me and I thank you so much for him! Help him to see his value to You, to turn to You for all his needs. Free him from self-consciousness and bless his efforts. Remind him daily who he is in You.

I'm sure I should have prayed "change me" first. You heard me cry out those words recently and I continue to bring you the same verse. Give me strength, the all-I-need, to make the necessary changes in my attitude. Teach me to love, to truly love. Soften my heart. Make me faithful, giving, and obedient.

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
- I Corinthians 13:4-8a
